A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
|Andrea Pinabell||Southface is an amazing organization with a bright future, talented staff, committed board and excellent partners, but it also takes supportive communities to truly make a difference. One of my favorite quotes is from Jane Goodall: “What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” Making a difference and working towards a more sustainable future is core to who Southface is as an organization. So many of our programs and initiatives impact the lives and support the livelihoods of many around the Southeast and across the U.S. We hope you will continue to support Southface as we work towards a more sustainable future, setting a course to work on resiliency, green infrastructure and water policy in order to provide a healthy built environment for all.|
